Fundamentals of Corporate Finance develops the key concepts of corporate finance with an intuitive approach while emphasizing computational skills. Presenting the topics in a logical and stepped-out manner, this book helps students develop an understanding of key financial concepts while also enabling them to develop the critical judgments necessary to apply financial tools in real-world decision-making situations. It offers a level of rigor that is appropriate for both business and finance majors and yet presents the content in a manner that students find accessible.

This International Adaptation includes new examples to help students better understand how to analyze the ethical dilemmas in business. In addition, select chapters include a new feature called Corporate Finance at Work which provides a broader perspective of the content covered in the chapter. Finally, to address the global context in which firms now operate, this edition adds to the discussion on international financial management by including sections on international accounting issues and Islamic finance.
